Now obviously you can respect someones religion but how can you respect it when stuff like this happens in it?
Im sorry but religion doesnt come above social morality and just pure politness. He has not done the correct thing because of his religion. I dont see how anyone can not see this as being wrong.
I know people will be scared to state their true opinion on this because everyone wants to be all PC and anti racist/anti religion because of the way todays society is. But I dont care, I just think this is utterly wrong.
I never had anything against him until listening to his interviews about the ricky walden match at the crucible this year where I felt he was a little rude towards him, but I managed to forget about that, then he goes and does this.
I suppose nothing will be done about it or nothing mentioned about it on official sites as it may be called racist or whatever.
But just imagine if it was the other way around and she didnt shake his hand cause he was a muslim. Imagine all the fuss that would be made of that. Why should it work one way and not the other? Theres no difference between her not shaking his because hes muslim, or him shaking hers because shes a woman.
I dont have a clue about religion and quite frankly dont want to have a clue (all respect to people who are religious) but why is it not right for him to shake her hand? My guess is that in his religion woman are below males? So how would that make her feel? how would it make you feel woman (monique) that he wouldnt shake your hand? Personally Id feel looked down upon and be quite upset.
Anyway Ill shutup before people hate me and hear your opinions.
